‘It is great!’  - Annabel, Armadale.

Product Description

A wonderful environmental musical with 12 memorable songs telling the tale of Bottlenose the dolphin who is taken into captivity.

A trusting young Bottlenose Dolphin goes off to play with her human friends, despite warnings about fishing nets from cautious Porpoises. Meanwhile the aggressive Great White Shark is trying to find a good school for his brainless godson Hammerhead, who’ll never learn to avoid the dreaded hook. Swimming along in the deep blue sea they encounter many colourful creatures including Barnacles, Herrings and Tuna Fish.

When Bottlenose is captured and taken to a dolphinarium, the sea creatures rush to her rescue. Great White threatens to attack the humans but Orca, a clever Killer Whale, enlists the help of the illusive Blue Whale, who counsels that force will lead nowhere, despite his might; communication with the humans who hold Bottlenose is the way to go.

Children of all ages will love the characters and irresistible music in this show, whilst gaining a better understanding of our interaction with the sea and its inhabitants. Suitable for key stages 1-3 (ages 5-14). Cross curricular aspects include science, ecology, geography, citizenship, language, literacy, music, dance, design and art.
